DLC characters (Shade, Emma, Randall, Yuzu) and weapons can be included.

Classes

Cavalier > Paladin > Gold Knight > Skogul (Lances)
Soldier > Knight > Baron/Fiend/Guardian > Spartan (Fiend and Guardian are enemy-exclusive monster classes with roughly the same stats as a Baron, both with +4 HP, but with 1 more Atk/Def for Fiend and 2 Atk/Def and 1 mov for Guardian) (Lances)
Mercenary > Myrmidon > Dread Fighter > Yasha (Swords)
Archer > Sniper > Bow Knight > Oliphantier (Bows)
Fighter > Hero > Conqueror (Swords, Swords/Bows)

Pegasus Knight > Falcon Knight > Harrier (Lances, Lances/Black Magic)
Cleric > Saint > Exemplar (White Magic)
Priestess > Princess > Rigain (Swords/Black Magic/White Magic)

Characters other than the ones listed are missing a spell list and are functionally identical due to not having a unique spell list

Alm cannot be reclassed until after Act 5, as switching his class means that he is unable to attack in dungeons to break breakables and hit monsters, thus softlocking the game. He will only be able to reclass after the main story. Keep this in mind if you are the one who is choosing his class; you may not see him do anything for a while.

Reasoning for Alm

Alm is left-handed in both the story and his custom class, and reclassing him into another class (which all default to right-handed attack animations) renders him unable to attack in 3D dungeons because the space in memory for his attack box is not loaded. (Celica is unaffected, being right-handed)

All characters will be changed to their custom classes ASAP besides characters who already have levels in their default classes, in which case they will be grinded to their base promotion level before being reclassed into the advanced path of their new class

Other considerations:
Please balance the number of each class I have lol, I don’t want to play armor emblem
Leave me a healer of some type on each route early, this game really needs a healer, especially on Hard

Besides the class editing, the following cheats will be enabled for the sake of this playthrough

  • able to recruit both Deen and Sonya, both are allowed to be picked on this run
  • Infinite Silver Marks (QoL improvement, technically infinitely grindable, forging will be reasonable)
  • intangible in 3D dungeons (QoL, makes long dungeons less tedious)
  • Retreat Turn 1 (QoL, enables immediate escape from accidental dungeon encounters)
  • Weapon equipability (Endgame only) (Need to be able to use Falchion if Alm’s class is changed
    )
